A different but wholly good take on sangiovese here. Interesting producer here. Easy to like wines. GilGraves family vineyard is in Axedale and located somewhere between Heathcote and Bendigo while the wines are produced at the Boomtown collective facility with insight from the family. Nice. Bright and juicy, fresh and light, tannin AWOL but slurpy drinkability through the roof. Sweet cherry juice, sprinkle of cinnamon spice, lick of kirsch, a little kiss of amaro through the finish. Just so darn pleasing to drink!

Tasting notes:

A youthful expression of Sangiovese, with a bright red hue and palate of raspberry and subtle spice draped along a structure of firm, fine tannin. Not too ripe, not too extracted. A sweet + savoury balance that is easy to enjoy.

Words from the maker:

One tonne of handpicked fruit, picked on March 2, 2018 from Chalmers vineyard, Colbinabbin, at a baume of 12.6. This fruit was destemmed without crushing and transferred into an open pot fermenter. Wild yeast ferment with no addition during the fermentation process.

Fermentation took three weeks in total. The fruit was then pressed and settled of gross lees in tanks, then transferred to seasoned french oak when dry. Malolacic fermentation finished in October and the wine was racked in December, with a small sulphur addition and bottled in January of 2019.
